Our library has had some limited success buying a few Eastern European
films directly from the directors when they do not have distribution
rights in place. Sometimes they have subtitles, sometimes not. In most
cases, we find out about them because a faculty member has received a
listserv notice offering the title for sale/contact information.

If you got this route, be prepared to negotiate for a price. In nearly
every purchase I have had to "suggest" or "offer" a price that I was
willing to pay.

We subscribe to the Film Movement Series
(http://www.filmmovement.com/filmcatalog/ ) which is an incredibly good
deal and very popular.=20

We also have a subscription to receive all the RUSCICO films
(http://www.ruscico.com/main.php?lang=3Den) as they are released from a
US vendor.=20

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
